Location: Gotham Precinct 15, Chelsea, Gotham City
Synopsis: Angelo and Phoebe meet
Cast of Characters: Phoebe Beacon, Achilles

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    If there was one thing about trying to find information on someone who was an agent who was apparently involved, it's not easy to find. Why?

    Probably because of security measures in the Roost surrounding the younger Outsider meant Phoebe had to be careful. She was currently down at the precinct having to apply to have her file updated to 'no longer missing' as well as a contact for the Themysciran Embassy called to question about her expulsion and further education, which currently was listed as 'Private'.

    She also had to update Scout's dog liscence, which coincidentally? Also done at a precinct.

    So while she was waiting for a release on her file, the girl with the leather jacket and beanie was filling out information on a dog liscence application. A lot of her kinky, poofy hair was sticking out from under the beanie in lieu of how it was braided before.

Achilles has posed:
    It's good that Angelo has had experience with people of all cultures and phenotypes over his many years. To him, people are people. No different from one to the next. When you've spent so long interacting with so many, racism is a laughable idea.
    Either way, he finally manages to cut through the red tape, and ends up across the hall from Phoebe as she does her paperwork. He refuses to interrupt, but wanted to be there the moment your attention was able to shift. Soon as he is noticed, he'll lift a hand in a small greeting. "I hope you don't mind some good news for a change." he offers softly.

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    "... you're not about to ask me to join a church, are you?" Phoebe questions as she glances up from her paperwork, looking up to Angelo with suspicion and curiosity.

    Gothamites are naturally a little suspicious. "'Cause I'm waiting on some agent guy and updating my paperwork, and pretty sure they don't want people prothelyzing in the clink."

Achilles has posed:
    Laughing softly, Angelo shakes his head, "No. I'm just some Agent guy." he replies before lifting an iPad type thing, but more high tech. SHIELD issue. "But... there's someone you need to speak with far more urgently than me." And he loads up the comm screen, "Caroline. Are you there?" he asks until he sees the video call connect. "Ah there we go. Here. You two need to talk." and without adding more, he turns the screen around to let Phoebe and her mom speak. For now, he is merely a stand holding up the iPad.

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    There's a clatter of the clipboard to the ground as Angelo speaks up. Caroline says "Ah, Angent Tampambulos! Any news--?" she states, and there's a gasp when the item is turned around.

    "MOM!" Phoebe squeaks out, and she looks up at Angelo, "Agent Tampambulos -- nice to meet you. Phoebe Beacon." she gives a sideways smile, but then looks to her mom. "Oh my gosh, Mom you look great! How's recovery going? Are they keeping up with your hydration? Do they have you on a pain drip?" she asks, leaning forward.

    "Don't worry about me, sweetie." Caroline smiles. "They're taking good care of me. I'll be released in about a week. I've already went and logged an apartment near the University." Caroline waves her hand a moment, her eyes tearing up.

    Phoebe sniffles. "I miss you, Mom."

Achilles has posed:
    To be honest, this moment is the entire reason why Angelo sprang for the whole thing. The feeling of watching mother and daughter talk. He is silent as he waits for the conversation to wrap up. And then he holds the tablet out to Phoebe. "Here. This is for you. It is pre-set to be able to call her any time."
    He isn't going to bother explaining to the daughter how someone was trying to -kill- her mom. Only that Mom is okay, and to show mom that the daughter is okay. But once he hands the tablet over, he moves to sit down beside Phoebe.
    "It is -very- nice to meet you too Ms. Beacon." he offers as he holds a hand out. "You can call me Angelo. I think that after what you've been through, you've earned that."

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    Angelo would notice that Phoebe has a very 'good vibes' feeling coming off her. She feels 'happy'.

    "Thank you, Angelo. I... I can't even express how thankful I am--" Phoebe whispers.

    "Can I express how angry I am to learn you got *expelled*? Gotham West is a Good highschool! Young lady--"

    "Mmmooooommm..." Phoebe breathes out. "They were making fun of you and your pain. And our pain. And I guess in the moment I just saw red and broke her nose. I mean, that thing cost more than I have in my college fund." Phoebe attempts to crack a joke instead of just a nose, and there is a pause where Phoebe looks up with a Wince to Angelo, and then down to Caroline.

    "-- and you disappeared and no one could find you and if I wasn't kept under by /God/ I would have gotten up outta the bed to *find you*." Caroline expresses with exasperation in her voice. "You are all I have left!"

Achilles has posed:
    When Phoebe looks his way, Angelo gives just a small grin and reaches a hand for her shoulder. Kind of that big brother vibe he tends to give off. It's hard to be him and not adopt all of the people around him.
    But stays quiet so that he doesn't intrude on the conversation. Again, not taking credit. Not wanting to point out his own accomplishments. So he just hangs out and smiles as he sees the love between mother and daughter.

Phoebe Beacon has posed:
    "I know, Mom. I know. Maybe I'll grab a ride and go see you in person, yeah? I'll bring some food from Onion Belt. Gotta be sick of all the hospital food, huh?" Phoebe asks with a small smile.

    They go back and forth, and then there's a couple moments, just heartbeats as the two look at one another -- and then Joel has to interrupt it with a bandage change.

    "I'll see you soon, Mom. Take care. I love you."

    "Love you too, Punky. Remember: Onion Belt!" she laughs, and the connection ends. Phoebe looks at the dark screen, and then goes to hand the super fancy pad back to Angelo.

    "... thank you. I was... I was told by one of the people who rescued me that my mom was still alive. She's... tougher than I realized." she breathes out, leaning back a moment.

Achilles has posed:
    "She certainly is tough. And you keep that. I want you to be able to talk to her any time either of you want until you get to see her next." offers Angelo in his voice tinged with just the barest hint of an English accent.
    "I'm just glad that you are both okay. I spoke to your mother at length, and promised that we would find you. After her injuries, and the ordeal she went through.. her first thought upon regaining consciousness was for -your- safety. She really is an amazing mother, isn't she?" he asks with a smile. "Now, why don't you let me help you finish up this paperwork, and then I'll buy you a bite to eat. Anything you want. Okay?" he asks.
